[SOLVED] problem in pywikibot login to third-party wiki

Jump to navigation Jump to search

When I want to login with bot to my wiki I see this error:

No handlers could be found for logger "pywiki"
Logging in to westeros:fa as SiteBot via API.
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\pywikipedia\login.py", line 436, in <module>

    raise PageNotFound(u'Page %s could not be retrieved. Check your family file ?' % url)
pywikibot.exceptions.PageNotFound: Page http://www.westeros.ir/w/api.php could not be retrieved. Check your family file?

My family file is this:

# -*- coding: utf-8  -*-

import family

# westeros

class Family(family.Family):
    def __init__(self):

        self.name = 'westeros'

        self.langs = {
                'fa': 'www.westeros.ir',
    def version(self, code):
        return "1.19.3"
	def scriptpath(self, code):
		return '/wiki'
	def apipath(self, code):
		return '/wiki'

api.php is in '/wiki' folder, why it says "Page http://www.westeros.ir/w/api.php could not be retrieved"? Where should I change "/w" to "/wiki" other than family.py file?

You should be using http://westeros.ir/wiki/api.php for your api.php. BTW: added to wikiapiary.

Yes, as you see I want use http://westeros.ir/wiki/api.php and defined apipath in westeros_family.py file like this:

def apipath(self, code):
               return '/wiki'

I wonder why I'm receiving this error. I never mentioned '/w' folder anywhere! Is there any way to fix this?

PS: Thanks for adding to wikiapary.

I'm afraid I don't know much about this. Looks like you got an answer from your post on Pywikipediabot page, though.

Yes, that was the solution. Problem was with tabs. Now my bot can login and edit pages. Thanks for your help.
